Post Easter Weekend - Ullapool
Sat 7th Apr 2018 to Mon 9th Apr 2018
organised by Central Scotland
 
 Meeting Point : tbc 
 Departure Time : 00:00: 

The Post Easter Weekend - Ullapool here we come again.


Saturday 7th to Monday 9th April 2018


For our 2018 Easter weekend run (not quite Easter as we have moved the dates to the following weekend) we’ll be returning  one of the very best areas of Scotland in which to enjoy driving your MX-5, Ullapool, Wester Ross.

We absolutely love this wild and beautiful area of Scotland, dominated by imposing mountains and breathtaking scenery. When you include some of the very best MX-5 style roads in Europe (which should be even quieter after the Easter weekend), the area is absolutely worth visiting whatever the weather.
We are also lucky to go over the Bealach on the Sunday (weather permitting) as it is closing for cable installation from Monday 9th April.
What more could you ask for - great scenery, egg rolling, Wattie's famous quiz and good company.

Read all about our previous visits to this area in 2015, 2015 and 2017




Ullapool



Our accommodation for two nights will be at The Royal Hotel, Garve Road, Ullapool. IV26 2SY Tel: 01854 612181

Once again Maria has managed to negotiate a great deal with the hotel with only a very modest increase of £5 per couple (the first increase in over 4 years).

  • Dinner Bed and Breakfast in a balcony room overlooking Loch Broom for only £140.00 per couple per night.

  • A balcony room for single occupancy is £70 DB&B per night.


  • The hotel is holding 20 rooms for us until the end of January. To avoid disappointment make sure you phone the hotel to book your room asap. Make sure you quote The MX5 Central to ensure you receive the above rates.

    Run will start at Tesco Perth with a lunch stop at the Garth Hotel, Granton on Spey.

    The Sunday lunch stop will be at the Applecross Inn, a beautiful location and famed for their excellent bar lunches. And of course we have the stunning drive over the Bealach Na Bah.

    On Monday we will drive back via Inverness, and Granton on Spey, with a lunch stop at The Winking Owl, Aviemore before heading via Tummell Bridge to the end of run at Lochearnhead

    SUNDAY EASTER EGG ROLLING COMPETITION


    Once again we intend to have an Easter egg rolling competition. However we have decided not to have the decorated egg or easter bonnet competitions (easter will have passed by then) but that does not prevent you from painting your rolling egg and using Wattie's patented egg launcher.


    The Egg  Launching Competition




    A raffle will also be held with the proceeds this year going to our chosen charity for 2018.



    Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance

    Donations of prizes are always welcome.
